Usage Notes

The synchronized full table scan feature of Teradata Database allows several table scanning tasks to simultaneously access the portion of a large table that is currently in the cache. Synchronized table scans happen only when full table scans are accessing similar areas of a large table. Synchronized table scans can improve database performance by reducing the required disk I/O. Synchronized table scans are available only to large tables undergoing full table scans.
